Video: Distress Marker Video + Giveaway

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop!

Today I have a video for you showing how I used the goodies in this kit along with Tim Holtz Distress Markers for some soft watercoloring…

Distress Markers are so incredibly easy to watercolor with. SO easy. And by ironing off the embossing when you are done, you end up with a “how-did-she-do-that” look. These stamp images? Perfect for this technique. (For any coloring, for that matter!)

It is also simple to do a soft glow of a color around a stamp image with Distress Markers. For this card I used the Tumbled Glass blue marker.

Here is the stamp set in the kit – so classy – and a peek at the May kit. The kits are very reasonable – only $19.95 for subscribers. (Heck – a stamp set is only a bit less than that and you get one of those in it plus a lot more.) These kits have been selling out so you may want to subscribe to ensure you get one each month. (You can also get the stamp set separate, but it is definitely a better deal to get the kit! Oh, and I am dying to cross stitch on those grid images.)

Next be sure to head over to the next blog on the hop – the home of my fabulous friend Kristina Werner. I am sure she will rock this card kit. (If you want to start at the beginning, you can head to the Simon Says Stamp blog.)

Talk about AWESOME giveaways. Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 gift certificate on each of the blogs on this hop! (That’s $450 in total!) So leave a comment here by 11:59pmEST on 4/25/13 for your chance to win a $50 shopping spree. Good luck!
